The Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) is a donor-funded global knowledge and technical assistance program, administered by the World Bank. ESMAP provides analytical and advisory services to low- and middle-income countries to increase their know-how and institutional capacity to achieve environmentally sustainable energy solutions for poverty reduction and economic growth. ESMAP is commissioning an external evaluation of its program. The objective of the evaluation is to draw lessons from the operational processes and implementation of the FY17-20 Business Plan, including the achievement of the intended results and the efficiency of operational processes, and use the conclusions and recommendations for reflection, learning and strategic adaptation of the program for the next business plan. The ESMAP Program Secretariat and the Consultative Group will be the primary users of the evaluation.

The World Bank is seeking to hire a firm to conduct an extensive study of the potential to use the Climate Auction Model, as piloted by the Pilot Auction Facility for Methane and Climate Change Mitigation, in the context of green buildings in Indonesia. The study will consist of a Regulatory Assessment, a Market Scoping and an Economic Analysis of the green and affordable housing in Indonesia and enable the World Bank to prepare a pilot in Indonesia.
Floating solar technologies are paving the way to significantly scale up the use of solar energy around the world, especially in countries with high population density and where land is a constraint
This first-of-its-kind market report estimates the global potential of floating solar, even under conservative assumptions, to be 400 gigawatts (GW). That is roughly the total capacity of all solar photovoltaic installations worldwide at the end of 2017

ESMAP seeks to build on the initial success of ENERGYDATA (a data publishing platform that hosts energy data provided by the WBG and other development partners) to develop new apps to respond to existing and upcoming needs from our clients, the private sector, and key development partners, and also consolidate those apps already developed and provide a more standardized user experience. ESMAP proposes to issue a new Master Agreement contract covering the development of new apps, consolidation of existing apps, curation of new and existing datasets, user interface improvements and routine maintenance of the ENERGYDATA site and all its current and future subdomains.

As outlined in ESMAPs Business Plan 2017-2020, Achieving universal access by 2030 will require a step change in the rate of new connections and in levels of investment, particularly in low access countries. Sector-wide programs in the electricity sector are showing better results than what can be achieved using a project-by-project approach. These programs are based on national electricity access roll out plans using geospatial planning and least-cost combinations of coordinated grid and off-grid electrification. The geospatially determined plan in turn anchors the sector investment financing prospectus.

This activity will involve assembling global evidence and analysis on electric mobility programs and their impact on development. The objective is to help countries design electric mobility programs that are successful and effective at achieving their intended development aims across climate, economic, fiscal, and technical dimensions. The scope of analysis will consider (i) private vehicle transport; (ii) public transport; and (iii) freight transport. The firm / organization selected for this assignment will implement 3 core activities: 1. Data and information gathering on the current state of electric mobility around the world – including (i)status of key technologies; (ii) definition of key market participants; (iii) development of a database on ongoing or recently completed pilots or programs; 2. Collection of stakeholder views through interviews and surveys; and 3. Compilation of country case studies on electric mobility programs.

The World Bank-ESMAP team is launching the first Global Energy Access Household Surveys to set a baseline to track progress towards Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) goal and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number 7 on access to affordable, reliable and sustainable modern energy by 2030. A reputed local firm with extensive experience in household surveys is sought to conduct the baseline survey on energy access using the multi-tier framework approach to track progress towards SDG7 . The survey will be nationally representative and administered to both urban and rural localities. The firm will work with the World Bank-ESMAP to pre-test, finalize and implement the survey. Data collection should be carefully monitored to ensure high quality information.
Picture an island in Bangladesh that is so remote that there is no way the traditional electricity could reach it. Not now, and probably not anytime soon. That was the situation in Monpura just a few years ago – but not today.
